JMC: PAUSE FOR THOUGHT: 

THE QUESTION IS, HOW DID A JUMP MEETING AS THIS YEARLY CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL, THAT WE WILL ALL ENJOY OVER THESE NEXT 4 DAYS, COME TO BE? 
Lets piece together this adventure over the next 4 days and see what we can discover. Who are the people who founded this festival?  Who are the people who worked to get this racecourse and this meeting in particular up and running? 
JMC: TRUST IN ACTION .... TRUST IN PRACTICE. 



Trust the greatest gift a rider can share with her – his horse.
Many seek it but few find it.

History[edit]

“The name of the village means "Priests fortified place", from Anglo-Saxon preost and burh, possibly from a fortified manor house belonging to the Bishop of Hereford in the 13th century. The settlement is mentioned as Preosdabyrig in 899-904. Prestbury is listed in the 1086 Doomsday Book as "Presteberie", part of the property of the church of Hereford, with 18 villagers, five smallholders, a priest, a riding man and 11 slaves. By the 13th century it had become Presbery. In 1249 the Bishop of Hereford was granted permission to hold a weekly market along with a three-day annual fair in August.[2]
History[edit]
"The Grand Annual is the oldest race at the Festival, and it is also the oldest chase in the present National Hunt calendar. It was first run in April 1834, and it was initially contested over three miles of open country at Andoversford, near Cheltenham. The race was discontinued in the 1860s, but it was revived at the turn of the century. During the early 1900s it took place at several different venues, including Melton MowbrayLeicester and Warwick. It returned to Cheltenham in 1913.
"The name of Johnny Henderson (1920–2003), a banker and racehorse owner, was added to the race's title in 2005. Henderson, the father of trainer Nicky, realised in the early 1960s that the racecourse at Cheltenham was attracting the interest of property developers. To safeguard its future, and that of the Festival, Henderson and other Jockey Club members formed the Racecourse Holdings Trust, and raised £240,000 to purchase the venue.[2]

The running order of the races at the Cheltenham Festival was altered slightly in 2009, and the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Chase is now the last event on the final day. "
